2016 Joseph Tully Students for Integrity in the Criminal Justice System Scholarship
Attorney Joseph Tully is pleased to announce our $1,000 cash scholarship award aimed at developing outstanding future leaders with a personal or academic interest in advancing ethics and integrity in the United States criminal justice system.
The 2016 Joseph Tully Students for Integrity in the Criminal Justice System Scholarship was established to help defray the cost of education-related expenses, including tuition, books, fees and living expenses for a student of any age planning to enter or continue attendance at any college, university, or law school within 9 months of the application date.
Due process of law and a fair and impartial jury trial are among the fundamental liberties granted by the U.S. Constitution to each and every American citizen. Bribery, negligence, police misconduct, abuse of power and other forms of corruption within the U.S. Criminal Justice System threaten the viability of our nation’s government, businesses and freedom of law-abiding citizens. Lawyer author Joseph Tully is a strong advocate for the development of future leaders who are committed to promoting integrity and ethics throughout the criminal justice process.
